Dance In Frame with chameckilerner


Rosane Chamecki and Andrea Lerner have been dancing together since they were fifteen years old. Moving to New York from Curitiba, Brazil, in 1989, they have been collaborating for thir- ty-five years. At times mistaken for twins, they can seem almost body–mind melded. Officially forming chameckilerner in 1992, they made dances, films, and videos. Then, abruptly, in 2007, chameckilerner staged its own demise— the figurative killing-off of the artistic duo. No one, including the two of them, knew what the outcome would be. Lucky for us, there was a resurrection. For the past few years, chameck- ilerner has been primarily choreographing for the camera, making videos, and, most recently, multi-screen installations.

Dance In Frame

This is a workshop about “why, when and how” to convey a choreographic idea into video. Through hands-on exercises, we’ll explore tools available in this medium, like framing, camera movement, deconstruction of space and time. Are those tools essential to translate your idea, and is the video the best medium for your concept? These are some questions we will be examining in this workshop.

The body is capable of so much more than what it can do. For example, sound coming from the piano was more or less constant until John Cage created the prepared piano by introducing different objects into its’ body. These components altered the piano’s harmonics. Similarly, questions will be applied to our bodies to alter the harmonics of movement through choreography.

Hay dances, coaches, directs, and writes. Figure a Sea, a work for the Cullberg Ballet, with original music by Laurie Anderson, will be performed October 2016 at Montclair State University. Her 4th book, Using the Sky, and film, Turn Your F*^king Head, about Hay’s final Solo Performance Commissioning Project, are available from Routledge Books.
